1. Think Sporty

There are many ways to wear faux leather leggings ranging from wildly rock n’ roll to seriously high fashion, but if you are a mature gal and have a laid-back lifestyle, a sporty look works really well. Think energetic, fun, practical.

2. Start With High-Quality Leggings

A sporty leggings outfit starts with high-quality faux leather leggings. My favorite brand is Spanx. Their faux leather leggings have a high-power waistband, so no muffin top. It’s wide and contoured to flatten your stomach, and it gives you a perky bottom. These leggings are the perfect thickness – not too thin or too thick, and really hold their shape.

3.  Pair Leggings with a Tunic Sweater

For a sporty fall look, pair your leggings with a long tunic sweater in deep, rich fall color.

This gorgeous burgundy knit tunic is stunning against these dark leggings and creates a warm, cozy, casual vibe. The cute, snap-up side slits make it playful and sporty.

4. Wear Statement Sneakers

Heeled booties with faux leather leggings are when you want a sexy look, but most times, you want to be comfy. Keep your feet happy with a pair of fabulous statement sneakers.

These metallic snake print ones by cole Haan are so chic. Not only are they comfy, but they have a slight sheen, which works well with the subtle sheen on the leggings.

5. Push Up Your Sleeves

For a more energetic and youthful look, push up your sweater’s sleeves to expose some forearm.

6. Add Sunglasses

Don’t forget a pair of cool sunglasses! These are from Quay Australia, a new brand I’ve discovered that has fabulous sunglasses at reasonable prices. I love the gradient lenses, and the subtle gold glitter finish!

  1. Thank you so much for this post as I am waiting for my faux leather leggings from the Nordstrom sale.. I wasn’t sure on tunics being a rectangle body type?
